In collaboration with Zagato, the Italian automotive Atelier and Total Design Center, Leica Camera AG, Wetzlar, presents a special limited edition: the Leica Ultravid 8x32 ‘Edition Zagato’. Uniting the values shared by both classical companies – premium quality, craftsmanship and tradition – the Leica Ultravid 8x32 ‘Edition Zagato’ combines unique design with cutting-edge technologies.
The outer shell of the ‘Edition Zagato’ is manufactured from aluminium and its front lenses feature two red anodised rings inscribed with ‘Zagato’. In an elaborate process, hundreds of fine grooves have been milled into the surface of the aluminium shell to lend this pair of Leica binoculars previously unseen stylish looks and a unique haptic sensation.
The Leica Ultravid 8x32 ‘Edition Zagato’ is strictly limited to only 1,000 examples for the entire global market. In addition to the binoculars, the edition also includes a case designed by Zagato and a matching carrying strap and hand strap in genuine Italian leather. The Leica Ultravid 8x32 ‘Edition Zagato’ will be available from September 2015 at selected Leica Stores and Boutiques.
Zagato was founded in Milan in 1919 by Ugo Zagato, who is famous for having been the first in the automotive industry to apply aviation’s advanced, lightweight technology to design more aerodynamic car bodies. With these principles, Zagato became an iconic racing champion of the world’s greatest competitions and even today remains a leading international marque for classic, lightweight, aerodynamic, sporting-lifestyle collectible cars.
Zagato’s Atelier and Total Design Center remains in Milan, where it continues to design and build unique, limited-series collectible cars. Earlier this year, the Atelier presented the Zagato Mostro powered by Maserati to the international public at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. The Mostro pays tribute to the historic, one-off Maserati 450 S Zagato from 1957, nicknamed “the Monster,” which is one of the most precious collector cars in the world today.
